Caribbean Safety and Security Net (CSSN) discontinues daily HF voice net

By CSSN — last modified Mar 13, 2018 04:47 PM
Effective 1 April, 2014, the Caribbean Safety and Security Net (CSSN) will discontinue its daily HF voice net on 8104 at 0815 HRS.

Despite the interest in the net that was indicated in the CSSN user survey recently, actual participation rates were too low to make the effort required to sustain the net worthwhile.

Many thanks to Harm Brink of S/V Horta who served as net controller for the last two years, and to all those who participated.

Caribbean Safety and Security reports will continue to be accepted and published on the CSSN website (, so bookmark and check the site regularly for the latest important NEWS and incident reports.

The CSSN team has many new site features under development, which will add new functions and further improve the user experience, so check back often!
